The Thompson Local News

The Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs (LIGA) Committee will meet tomorrow.


The committee meets every second Wednesday, and is tasked with not only assembling the agenda for City Council meetings, but also with coordinating the City’s lobbying efforts. The LIGA committee also serves as the representative for the City on the School Board/ City Liaison Committee.


The agenda for the meeting includes two proposed resolutions from the City of Thompson for the Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM). The first resolution requests that AMM lobby the Provincial government to amend the mining tax act. The resolution states that the City would like the Province to increase the percentage of mining tax that they allocate to the mining reserve fund to ensure that the fund remains sustainable, as well as clarifying the process for municipalities to access the funds.


The second resolution requests that the Province be lobbied to provide the "appropriate funding to municipalities" when it comes to increased costs to waste disposal grounds.


The meeting is open to the public, and will take place at City Hall, starting at 3:45pm.


The full agenda can be found here.
